At Smartwatch Solutions, we understand the unique challenges businesses face in safeguarding their assets, employees, and operations.

What is commercial CCTV

Commercial CCTV, or Closed-Circuit Television, is a security solution that transforms the way businesses protect their assets and ensure the safety of their premises. 

At its core, CCTV for business involves the strategic placement of cameras to monitor and record activities. One of CCTV’s biggest strengths is that it can be tailored to fit the needs of your business premises. Cameras can be positioned carefully for maximum coverage, regardless of layout. This enables constant surveillance of your business assets and provides a powerful deterrent against potential security threats.

What are the benefits of using CCTV security solutions on business premises?

Implementing CCTV security solutions on business premises offers a range of invaluable benefits, making it an indispensable asset for any business premises. 

  • Site security systems act as the perfect deterrent for potential intruders potentially looking to target your establishment. The physical presence of visible CCTV cameras sends a strong message about the level of security in place. 
  • Our commercial CCTV provides continuous monitoring, offering real-time insights into activities within and around your business premises. This not only enhances overall safety but also aids in the swift identification and response to any security incidents. 
  • The ability to remotely access and manage these CCTV systems provides business owners with flexibility and control, fostering a secure and efficient operating environment.

What is the difference between commercial and residential security cameras?

The primary distinction between business security systems and residential cameras lies in their intended purpose. 

Commercial security cameras are designed for larger, high-traffic areas such as offices, and warehouses and possess advanced capabilities such as night vision to meet the demands of diverse commercial settings. On the other hand, residential security cameras are created for homes and smaller properties, focusing on ease of use, affordability, and integration with existing home systems. 

At SmartWatch, included in our commercial CCTV package is out-of-hours monitoring and security response. Should an intruder be seen by you or our team, our trained security personnel can respond immediately. This same level of service isn’t normally available for residential systems.

CCTV for business – FAQs

What are the rules for CCTV in a business?

It is your right to use business CCTV to protect your property however, there are certain regulations that you must follow to abide by data protection law. You must: 

  • Inform people there is CCTV on the premises and why it is being used. This is usually achieved by putting up a sign to let people know they are being filmed
  • Be able to provide images upon request of anyone that has been recorded within a month
  • Be able to share images with police, or most other authorities should they ask for them 
  • Only keep images for as long as they are relevant for use in your business

At SmartWatch, we’re happy to provide signage, along with any supporting footage or images needed at your request, for no additional cost.

How many security cameras do I need for my business?

The number of CCTV security cameras needed for your business premises will depend on its size, and the level of monitoring you would like. In most cases, businesses choose to place CCTV cameras at entry points into their premises, or in particularly high-traffic areas. 

If you’re unsure about what level of CCTV security you need, get in touch to book an on-site consultation with our team. 

Do commercial CCTV cameras work without the internet?

Yes, CCTV cameras for business can operate without the internet, monitoring your business premises 24/7. However, without an internet connection remote monitoring and out-of-hours monitoring would not be available. 

If your premises do not have access to the internet, you can take out a data contract with SmartWatch Solutions, which provides you with our commercial CCTV and a 4G connection via a router, allowing you to monitor your site at all times.
